Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar was left stunned after he managed to pick up one of the luckiest kills ever in Escape from Tarkov.

Even though some Twitch viewers have stopped watching Escape from Tarkov streams now that they no longer give out free in-game items, that hasn’t stopped streamers from playing the intense FPS title.

That includes summit, who has been grinding his way through by himself, as well as a part of a streamer squad. Yet, while playing on his lonesome, he managed to pull off one of the best and most accidental kills the game has seen.

Escape from Tarkov has been dominating Twitch viewership.


Playing through the Interchange level during his January 27 stream, the popular streamer had been trying to find a shortcut through one of the stores to give himself a better angle on potential foes when he decided to shoot through the glass in order to make a hole for himself.

Yet, as he did so, he managed to pick the one spot where an enemy was sat – giving him, perhaps, the luckiest kill seen in Battlestate Games’ title to date. The 1G was pretty surprised by his feat too. 

“Brothers, you are not going to believe what the f**k I just did,” he called out with a stunned look on his face. “All I meant to do was shoot that glass open and there was a f**king guy there! I just wanted to shoot the glass open bro – I didn’t mean to shoot the guy, I didn’t know he was there until after I shot.” 


While Summit and his viewers were rightly impressed by his extremely fortunate kill, it wasn’t exactly the best news for his slain enemy. Due to how Tarkov works, death means the loss of any loot you’ve taken with you and managed to pick up during the run.

Though, it didn’t appear as if Summit had doubled on his good luck as he only managed to swipe some health items and fresh ammo.
